From the Library: Midsummer/Moon

in Uncategorized

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 19 June, 2010

Today on Radio Riel, Elrik Merlin presents an extensive collection of songs about, or connected with, the Moon, and with the Summer Solstice, which will be with us in a few days’ time.

The genres range from the Baroque to Rock (of the lighter kind, by and large) to folk, New Age and jazz (both smooth and traditional styles are represented, with quite a dash of big band). There are also some surprises, as is typical for an Elrik Merlin programme, and sometimes the link to the theme is a little, ah, extended. Yes, it’s another one of Mr Merlin’s “Saturdays Become Eclectic” shows.

Then at 11am and 7pm Pacific Time, that’s 7pm and 3am in the UK, don’t miss the final episodes of our two classic radio serials in the ZBS Radio Hour — first The Fourth Tower of Inverness, followed by Ruby, the Galactic Detective, brought to you courtesy of our friends at Listen-in at home – or join us in the beautiful Caledon Conservatory for a cup of tea (

While you’re listening, check out the new ZBS Summer Catalog (3MB PDF download)! It’s full of amazing stuff — including the latest Steampunk series. Like what you see? Hop on over to and pick them up!

Next week in the same slot, we’ll be starting two new series — more details on the air from Monday and here in the Programme Guide later in the week.
